    Currently on Microsoft Windows XP Professional edition with SP2 can't seen to
    update to Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0: x86 (KB829019) and receiving Error
    Code:0x643 and the only anti-spyware program are Microsoft AntiSpyware beta
    and Ad-Aware SE Professional. Also no Framework 2.0 beta installed. So how
    can I install the update to Framework 2.0?

    Were you on the Beta version? If not then that suggestion would not apply.

    I found a reference to one person with the same error message, caused by
    apparently having 'too many firewalls' active.

    Reduce your firewall protection and try again (go offline, disable any
    third-party firewall, and ensure that Windows Firewall is active - then go
    back online)

    see if that helps.

    I have been unable to install the .NET update. I am running Windows 2000
    Professional on an IBM ThinkPad Laptop. I do not have any beta versions of installed. I have Microsoft .Net Framework 1.1 as well as the hotfix
    for it - (KB886903). I tried installing it with the critical updates, then
    seperate from the critical updates. Both times I got error 0x659; I have no
    idea what that error means.

    Additionally, as recommended on this forum, I tried going to the Microsoft
    ..NET Framework developer centerand downloading/installing it directly from
    that site
    ( I
    tried installing the Redistributal Package (2.0 x86) as the site says this
    must be installed before installing the SDK 2.0 x86 package. It was unable
    to install; the error message said that it either could not open the
    installation package or a required file.

    The only thing I have yet to try is to uninstall the 1.1 version (and
    hotfix) before trying to install the 2.0 version. I did not think this was
    necessarily causing a problem since all the posts I have read so far said
    that only those people with beta versions had to uninstall them first.

    I will post again once I have tried uninstalling version 1.1 first.

    Ever think about beginning a new thread about /your/ problem, instead of
    "piggybacking" onto all these other threads, no matter how similar their
    problems may be?

    Well for me always I received the same error Code:0x643 when I tried to
    update to .Net Framework 2.0.

    Do you have any more details? I suspect that is just a summary code.

    E.g. here's what I get when I convert to decimal and search for that value:


    (MSN search for
    1603 language:en

    If you're not sure try a search of all files changed on the day of the update
    which contain 643 (Omit the 0x prefix in case it isn't used or in case in other
    contexts it is given right-justified in a larger field.) Once you find some files
    which match that criteria sort them by Date Modified; then you will be able
    to find files which were changed within the minutes that the update was running.

    all the anti-virus and firewall and antispyware I still getting the same
    error code of Error Code:0x643 and so I give up on trying to update to

    TY Madgamer - I think you've nailed it - uninstall the 2.0 beta first. Would
    that have been so hard for the MS Update team or .NET team to include in the
    executable or at least the readme?? My understanding is that MS does want
    ..NET to succeed . . .
    All I got from Knowledgebase (keyword 0x1011) was some wild goose about SNA

    I was having the same problem with installing .Net Framework 2. Removing the
    beta didn't work BUT after removing it along with Microsoft Visual J#
    Resdistributable Package 2.0 Beta 2 & Microsoft MSDN Express Library 2005
    Beta 2, restarting and manually downloading .Net Framework 2.0
    ( and installing it, everything seems fixed.
